SELINSGROVE, (Pa.) – Susquehanna University will host a “Breastival” October 17 to raise awareness about breast cancer. The event will be held from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in Mellon Lounge of Degenstein Campus Center.

The Breastival is the result of collaboration between Evangelical Community Hospital, the Susquehanna University Health Center and the campus organizations Students Promoting Awareness and Responsible Choices (SPARC), WomenSpeak and Zeta Tau Alpha. The event is intended to educate individuals about their susceptibility to breast cancer, and to give hope and support to victims of the disease. Activity topics will include how to detect lumps and the connection between alcohol consumption and breast cancer. Doctors and support groups will be on hand to discuss the different options and resources available to those affected by the disease.

Zeta Tau Alpha will continue the awareness and education campaign with the “Real Men Wear Pink Pageant” at 9:30 p.m. in Evert Dining Room of Degenstein Campus Center. Faculty and students will compete for the prize of an all-you-can-eat pass for the sorority's Second Annual Pancakes for Pink fund-raiser. Tickets for the pageant will be on sale at the Breastival.

Pancakes for Pink will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. November 3 at the Selinsgrove Community Center. Admission is $5 and will benefit breast cancer awareness and research.
